    I worked at University of Rochester Medical Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture in my department, as well as the institution as a whole was incredible. Working on a collaborative grant I was supported at every step.

    Cons

    As with any large organization, the structure and size of the center can be daunting to navigate. Complex regulations and department layout take time to become oriented to.

    Pros

    Excellent team to work with, everyone was always willing to help others and work together.

    Cons

    Management of raises and performance reviews was lackluster, the person giving the raises did not actually see what the team did on a day to day basis. They should leave the raises and performance reviews to the direct manager of that employee (either lead programmer or senior), not the project manager.

    I have been working at University of Rochester Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Reasonable vacation, varied teaching load, good colleagues, opportunities for internal funding support, education opportunities

    Cons

    Parking, IT support is mediocre at best, senior leadership doesn't listen to rank and file, siloed approaches to global problems drive faculty away.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to rank and file faculty, not just the 'special' ones. Provide better support of infrastructure to allow researchers to do their jobs with best/cutting edge technology, more support and training for grantsmanship

    Pros

    Never a dull moment on weekdays evening shift.
    Flexible schedule. Pick the days you want to work and your supervisor will try to accommodate you.
    Free tuition at the University of Rochester.

    Cons

    Frequently short-staffed due to people leaving or retiring.
    The churn rate is quite high. Experienced techs often leave for greener pastures, so they are always training new people.
    Toxic people at the workplace are not dealt with even after frequent complaints to management.
